Good call. I have used the Leatherman Wave for years and love it (lost and replaced it 2 times).

Amazon has it for $65:

There's also less expensive ones like the Sidekick:

I would recommend NOT buying the cheap knock-offs. I've owned several over time and have just about lost fingers from poor locking mechanisms, etc. Make sure the blades and tools lock solidly (the Wave does).

25 dollars won't get you too far, but each of these is around 25 dollars or less.

All this is carried comfortably in my 5.11 Apex pants.

u/pointblankjustice · 10 pointsr/bugout

There is a lot wrong with this list, so I'm just going to work down it one by one with my thoughts on the matter.

USB flameless lighter? Why? That is going to be unreliable, at best. Throw a few BIC lighters and some stormproof matches in there and be done with it. IF you want to be fancy, get something built to be rugged, that will stand up to use in the field:

Speaking of, I didn't see any sort of firestarting material. Warmth is going to be important, and you need as few steps as possible between you and fire. Get some quality firestarters. I am trying to keep all my links relevant from, so some of the brands I'm most familiar with aren't there. But these work well (though there are options from Wetfire and other brands that take up less space):

What is with the mall-ninja "tactical" hatchet? That is a lot of weight and not a lot of utility. You'd be better served with a reliable and lightweight folding saw, and a good full-tang fixed-blade knife. Something like a 7 inch Corona saw:

If you insist on carrying a hatchet (and their function in a bugout situation is debatable, especially for the weight) get something quality like an Estwing:

Nothing wrong with duct tape, but you'd do well to wrap just maybe 3-4 meters of it around a small core (like from doggy waste bags, or even just around itself).

The self-crank radio/flashlight/phone charger is shit. You also don't need four lights, especially if all of them are crap. Buy one good flashlight, and maybe one good headlamp.

A flashlight like a Nitecore P12 or something that runs on an 18650 and offers long runtime would be ideal. If you buy a diffuser cap for it, you can replace the lantern. Pick up some spare, high quality 18650 cells, as well. The P12 has SOS and beacon modes, which will run for days at a time, in addition to a nice throw and excellent brightness on Medium and High.

As for headlamps, those don't need to be super bright. You want something with enough brightness and floodiness to work around camp. But ideally you also want a red-light or low-light mode for night time, when you don't need to destroy your night vision just because you need to take a piss or something.

The powerbank thing in the crank radio is crap, only 1000mah. Not enough to charge most modern smart phones even 25%. Figure that of that 1000mah, ~25% will be lost just due to inefficiency in the charging process. Get a 10,000mah or bigger high quality battery, with 2.1A ports, and be done with it:

Combine the money you'd spend on the shitty folding knife and the shitty Gerber multitool, and buy a proper multi-tool. You don't need two folding knives.

The Leatherman Wingman is a good value, though I prefer a nicer quality one like the Charge TTi, but at four times the price it may not be worth it just for an S30V blade.

Ditch the camp toilet paper, that stuff is like wiping your ass with cardboard. Get some biodegradable camp wipes from an outdoor store. You can now use these to clean your ass, and they also are useful for wiping your hands, or taking whore baths.

Same with the camp soap. Are you bugging out or camping for a week? Nothing you are going to do in a bugout situation is going to necessitate body soap. Toothbrush, floss, deodorant.

Ditch the giant first aid kit full of crap you don't need. Those things are heavy and 80 of the 85 pieces are just different sized bitch stickers. Build your own first aid kit tailored around the likely injuries you would face: sprains, cuts, burns. Maybe throw some Quik Clot Z-pack gauze or a tourniquet (CAT or similar) in there for larger trauma, if that is a concern to you. Limit the bitch stickers to 5-10. All gauze, tape, trauma pads, alcohol wipes, tincture of iodine, moleskin for blisters, tweezers, surgical shears, gloves, maybe burn cream. Small containers of medications you might need: aspirin, antihistamines like Diphenhydramine, anti-diarrheals, etc.

That survival paracord bracelet thing is garbage. You already have 100ft of paracord in your list (which you could probably cut down to 50ft). You don't need some shitty firestarter, whistle, and compass thing. Buy a real lensatic sighting compass. Not going to do you much good without a map and the ability to understand it, anyway.

You have both a cookset AND a mug/pot. This is extra redundant and not needed in a bugout situation. Stick to food you don't have to prepare. Caloric density is your friend. Jerky, EPIC bars, Clif bars, etc.

If you need to boil water, use a single-wall metal canteen (NOT a thermos). Remove the plastic lid, fill with water, set in your fire. Widemouth canteens like those by Klean Kanteen are multi-purpose (multipurpose is your friend). You can sterilize water, you can cook and eat food out of it (because of the large opening), and you can fill with hot water, wrap in a sock, and warm your sleep system.

You don't need a can opener if you have a good multitool.

Lifestraws suck ass. They only work as a straw, and I am going to guess you don't want to get your water by drinking out of puddles exclusively. Get a Sawyer Squeeze mini filter. This can be used in-line with a hydration bladder, can be used like a Lifestraw, or can be used to filter an fill your water storage containers/bladder:

One seriously lacking area for you is your sleep system. A tarp and a space blanket are not going to keep you functionally warm. You might survive a night, but you won't be useful the next day.

At the BARE minimum, you should get a good, reflective, breathable bivvy sack, like this one from SOL, AND a sleeping pad. A bivvy will reflect heat back onto you, helping with heat lost through convection, but no sleeping bag will help with heat lost through conduction (you touching the cold ground). That is why a sleeping pad is mandatory. I have used the Escape bivvy and the Klymit pad linked here together, and both kept me comfortably warm to about 50 degrees F. Below that, I've had to augment with base layers or jackets, and that still sucked. If you are hoping to sleep in below freezing temperatures, you'll need a properly sorted ultralight sleeping bag.

Other recommendations of mine would be to take survival, medical and foraging guides and put them on a smartphone, along with a GPS mapping software and pre-downloaded offline topographical maps at 1:24k resolution of your main bugout areas and 1:100k resolution elsewhere. Something like Gaia GPS for iOS or Backcountry Navigator Pro for Android:

u/throaway_acer · 9 pointsr/minimalism

A multi-tool such as this Leatherman is great for doing little things around the house and can replace the need for a separate pocket knife, pliars, wire cutters, scissors, bottle opener, small screwdriver, etc etc.

Leatherman Wingman has been my go to for the last two years, it's a great budget tool for ~$30-$40. Gets almost every basic job you'd need done on set as a grip/gaffer and certainly as an AC.

u/Zerv14 · 4 pointsr/EDC

Off the top of my head things that are cool and don't break the bank:

Kershaw Cryo

Spydero Tenacious

Leatherman Wingman

Streamlight Microstream

Gerber Impromptu Pen

u/Yeffug · 4 pointsr/backpacking

Well that can be a long list... here goes though:


Dehydrated food

Cooking utensils (I just bring a small pot/cup and a spork personally)


Sleeping bag

Tent (two pound, two person from Big 5)

550 paracord

2 tarps

Katadyn base camp filter

Sunshade for camping pad




Lighter & matches

Water purifying tablets

I'm sure I'm leaving a few things off, but those are several of the basics

u/cleverint · 3 pointsr/videography

Leatherman Wingman. The uses for this thing in the field are endless. Unscrewing mounting plates, cutting cable/string, screwing/unscrewing things, etc. Never know what you might need it for.

Even for day to day use, if he just throws it in his bag I'm sure it'll come in useful eventually. Otherwise, I'd agree with an extra camera battery or highest capacity class 10 sd card you can get for $30.

u/blpsoup · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I work in IT, and I am also manly. A leatherman has saved my butt more times than I can count. I got mine when I was 12 and it's been with me since then ready to save my butt yet again and again and again. Get your friends leatherman multitools that are engraved with something. Maybe an inside joke only you folks would get.

Pair them with this:

I know they have knives, but they are indestructible and utterly useful in every way. My other suggestion would be an engraved hatchet and a bottle of Pendleton whiskey.

u/FeebleOldMan · 3 pointsr/EDC

Gerber MP400, but only easy-access pliers.

LM Wingman, but only easy-access knife.

u/ARKnife · 3 pointsr/knives

I like my Leatherman Wingman.

Relatively small and light, has spring pliers, all the necessary EDC tools and as a bonus - that awesome Leatherman warranty.

u/Redlyr · 3 pointsr/Fishing

Off the top of my head, a good multitool like a Leatherman.

A scale with measuring tape. For making sure you are within a size limit or for bragging rights.

Bogagrip like grabber or Fish Gripper for handling fish.

Hemostat for extracting a deep hook.

A good hat, UV rated shirt, sunblock and mosquito/tick repellent. Maybe a backpack with water reservoir a la CamelBak. I also keep a small first aid kit and a hook removal kit just in case.

Dry bag if you are going to be on a boat or kayak. No one likes a water damaged phone.


A folding net. Nothing is worse than having a good fish and losing because it too big to drag it up on the bank. I lost a good sized trout last week because I didn't have a net handy.

u/LEcareer · 3 pointsr/RedPillWomen

So maybe that tool you mention isn't a bad idea, especially if he isn't in any way sentimental. You might be (like me), and therefore think you need to provide something like that, but he isn't and recognizing that makes the "un-thoughful' gift, really thoughtful in it's own way. Maybe if money's tight and he's not prioritizing it, he might not get it even if he needs it, or he gets a cheaper one. And since you know he needs it, perfect.

As a handyman he might appreciate other useful tools, maybe something he can "edc" (every day carry, I think those make great gifts) like a Leatherman Multitool (though he might already have one). Very common tools men like to spend on and commonly even have hobbies around are: knives, flashlights, watches. Maybe his wallet is falling apart and he'd appreciate a nice new leather one. You obviously couldn't just blindly pick a random one of these, it will depend on what he currently has and what he needs as well as knowing his tastes slightly and research on your part (helpful communities all over Reddit) obviously don't get cheap stuff.

Shoes are a very hit/miss thing, so I wouldn't really go there unless you're super confident. But if you are... maybe something from the Red Wing heritage line as a kind of work shoe that still looks good (multi-functionality).

Possibly bourbon or scotch? If he is into that (do some research and get a nice one) A beer brewing kit?

Hell, maybe a real comfortable leather couch if he doesn't have one currently, would be an amazing gift.

These are just ideas, there might be something he already needs or wants but can not justify the cost...

Some of these MIGHT be too simple in themselves to probably give as an important gift though, so I'd say you can always get more than one (but remember it's better to give one really good one, than multiple cheap ones), or combine it with an experience.

A cabin trip, as mentioned, does sound like a good time, if he appreciates it, make sure he has wood to split, a fire to start :).

u/korgothwashere · 3 pointsr/EDC

I see a couple recommendations for the Wave here.

I'm going to lowball your price point and suggest you could probably do ok with less than that. Check out the Leatherman Sidekick or the Leatherman Wingman for much of the same functionality that you would get with the Wave. You could then take that $50 you saved and put it towards any number of screw driver sets if you decide you need that too.

If all you need it for is basic box opening and occasional fixing, I would think you could be just as well served with either one of these on your person coupled with a small screw driver set at your discretion.

Just my two cents.

u/yasec · 3 pointsr/EDC

Leatherman Skeletool is a great item, which you should be able to get in that range. I got the upgraded Skeletool CX for under that from r/knife_swap.

If you want smaller try the Leatherman Style or Gerber Dime . The Style comes with scissor main tool or pliers.

Full size I’d suggest the Leatherman Wingman .

u/EraserGirl · 3 pointsr/LivingAlone

Sturdy step stool ($40) - not the rickety tubular kitchen chair ones, I mean one where you can stand on the top. a Buy it for Life item, not inexpensive, but safe.

Leatherman multi tool (around $50), which i keep in the junk bowl because I can never find a screwdriver fast enough. Pricey new, less expensive when you buy it second hand or in a pawn shop. they don't really break, but you do have to clean and oil them once a year.

Cordless drill (under $50), mine basically has the screw driver bit in it 90% of the time. the rest of the time I drill lots of pilot holes. pay attention to the battery... if you can get one with a battery that is shared by other tools in the line, then it is easily replaceable and if you buy another tool in that line you can swap batteries. I like to have 1 battery in the charger and one in the device.

Spirit, bubble or torpedo level. (under $10) the Hanging kit usually contains just the wires and hooks, but you need a small spirit level for hanging pictures and shelves evenly. doesn't matter the brand they all work the same

Small tool boxes vary in quality. I don't know if this is for you or someone else. But don't buy anything unless it's a NAME BRAND, cheap metal tools bend and can break with too much torque. Even the Stanley line that Walmart sells isn't fabulous, but it's better than a nameless brand. I don't like SETS of tools, but you need to start someplace, buy GOOD tools one at a time, I love finding $$$ tools at thrift stores. bought a cheap socket set 4 years ago to replace my stolen ones and they already have rust)

Bucket organizer. (around $15) If you buy a SET of tools, take the plastic blow molded container and put it in the recycling. You will never bother putting the tools back in and when you get more tools they won't fit. Bucket Organizers are pockets that fit around a 5 gallon bucket. You shove your tools into the pockets and everything else in the middle. And keep it in the bottom of your closet and carry it to where you need the tools.

Tack Hammer. (under $15) You won't need a big 22 oz hammer, but a smaller 16 oz one with a normal handled and then a Tack hammer, these have a narrow head and sometimes are magnetic and hold the nail in place. Tack hammers are easier to use for hanging things exactly where you want them.

Stud finder.(under $20) uses a battery, and lets you know where the studs are behind drywall. BEST PURCHASE EVER. any brand will work fine.

Digital Infared Thermometer (under $20) Non-contact Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer Temperature Gun - ALSO BEST PURCHASE EVER... works in the kitchen for food and oven temp, fridge temp, and for locating drafts and cold spots around doors and windows.

Toilet Plunger - the sort with the extra bit on the end. you do NOT want to be waiting around for someone to unblock your toilet. It may be disgusting but scoop out some of what's in the toilet before you start plunging, it's less disgusting than having to mop it off the floor. You want the plunger that makes a seal around the bottom.

BUCKET. (under $10) mine is constantly in use, i keep it in the tub and toss wet things into it. I have gone through EVERY TYPE on offer...I was so sick of plastic buckets, that warped and stained, where the handles ripped out. But the BEST and cheapest one I have ever found is a flat back duraflex bucket for watering horses. Not kidding. Made of a hard polyethylene these things are designed to be flung around and stepped on by 2000 lb animals. these are cheap if you buy them in a feed store, but even with the shipping on Amazon it is WELL WORTH the money. You will need a bucket when you empty the back of the toilet tank to change the flushing flapper or gasket, and you will need it when you empty the commode itself, if you have to change out the wax seal underneath.

Blanket hangers. (6 for $27) yeah this is obscure, but when I moved I lost a LOT of storage space. These saved my sanity. I use them to hang up quilts and sleeping bags in the back of the closet OFF SEASON. I also use them to hang blankets, sheets curtains and stuff once they come out of the laundry aren't quite dry. I didn't even know there was such a thing before now I wouldn't give them up.

Flashlight. ($30-50) I've written about these before. Until I bought a GOOD one, I had no idea how bad the others were. Cheap flashlights are great to have scattered about in the cellar, or in the junk drawer. but if you really want TO SEE, get a great flashlight. I gifted myself one for christmas one year and I love it. It hangs by the door and if I am going to be out very late or the weather is bad, I shove it in my bag. It will also illuminate Well past the end of the porch and into the yard if I hear a noise. any very good brand will do, but I found Maglites to be dangerously useless.

u/Clever_Platypus · 3 pointsr/Bushcraft

I'll try not to repeat what others have said.

I would go for a nice rain jacket
Or a poncho.

Maybe a nice fleece

I think that a nice fixed blade knife of a realistic size would go a long way. I'd consider either an ESEE 3, 4, or laser strike. I don't think amazon carries then. The standard sheathing and fit and finish is good enough in my mind that I'd place them above TOPs or Becker.

I'd really consider a back like the Kelty Redwing series. They're not so big that you can't use them as a daypack but you can also go 1 or 2 nights in them.

Like some other said a nice cheap folder like an opines, or a KaBar dozier would be a good idea!

And I try to always carry a good multitool, the leatherman wingman is a nice option that will save some money.

u/VaguePeeSmell · 3 pointsr/knifeclub

I'd recommend a Case stockman or something of similar sort. Case makes great traditional-style knives around your price range. You could also get them all Leatherman Wingmans.

u/Szalkow · 3 pointsr/guns

Hopefully you've tried contacting your target to ask them about their collections, their uses, stuff they want, and stuff they wouldn't like. Feel free to drop as many Phone Booth references as possible. You should be able to get some ideas.

If you can't find anything specific, the stuff you've mentioned will never go amiss. Some other stuff I could think of:

  • Targets, be they paper, adhesive, or metal

  • Gun bags, belts, storage and transportation solutions, either generic or tailored to what you know of their collection

  • Magazines (specific to their gun and of legal capacity; you can never have too many)

  • Some ear or eye pro

  • Gift certificates or range memberships for businesses in their area

  • Action movies with gun porn (anything with a long-ass entry on IMFDB)

  • A nice coffee table book

  • Generic tools, like a pocket knife, multitool, or tacticool flashlight

  • If they're a gun-toting gamer, stalk their Steam/Xbox Live/Playstation accounts and pick out a game they'd like (reloaders will particularly enjoy Fallout New Vegas)

  • Beef jerky

u/briangiles · 3 pointsr/ebola

Exactly! From the beginning of this I have said that it NEVER hurts to be ready for the worst. Where I live we get a lot of earth quakes and I am sure within my life we'll get a nasty one. Our building codes are VERY strict and I don't fear that my place will tip over, but the power grid in the US is VERY old and in need of repair badly.

We lost power out here two years ago over about 2 days and people were freaked out. What happens when something really bad happens and it's a week or two weeks with no power, no gas, the food starts dwindling and people are running around like crazy trying to get food to eat.

I'll have my MRE's not the best food in the world, but damn I won't starve to death. I think about prepping hardly ever and I need to get my self re situated and make sure I have everything back together again. I even made a list here for people who were new to prepping. My list is far from a complete list of things one would like to have, but it has the essentials.

The fact of the matter is that the subreddit for the most part seems to be under the illusion that if you don't live in West Africa you are 100% safe, which is a dangerous thought to have.

As /u/snorgsniffer said yesterday

>When confronted with dire circumstances beyond their control, humans predictably engage in one of the following behaviors:

> Denial
> Distraction
> * Drugs / Drink (altered state of consciousness)

>All of those things result in still another "D"... delay
It's clear that both the victims and potential responders are engaging in "D behaviors" at this time.

>My point? It is almost impossible to change someone's mind using logical argument when their conclusion is an irrational, emotional one. They just burrow deeper into their chosen coping behavior when forced to look even more closely at the thing which frightened them so badly in the first place.

>Though not directly news related, I think understanding the psychological underpinnings of the outbreak is important when interpreting the nuts & bolts side of it. This sub seems to me like a good place to see it discussed. There are some really bright people here.

A lot of people are giving voice to their coping mechanisms of denial to make themselves feel better. I don't think their attitude will change until the numbers reach upwards of 50,000 and the people start fleeing and spreading this crap all over the globe.

+1 Had mine for years, love it. I wish they still used the leather cases with the button instead of this polyester velcro crap though. However, I do find with Leatherman the Wave is probably the minimum you can spend for lifetime quality. I have had two Wingmans (30$~) break on me in less than a year.

u/a_very_stupid_guy · 2 pointsr/camping

This is the only multi tool I have. It's ~$20 so it's a nice "intro level" one. It's a good size, pretty comfortable. The scissors and knife are easy access but I don't trust the quality of the metal with my life - to be honest. Stainless steel is weaker IIRC so that kinda has to do with it. It's in my tackle box though so I think it does pretty well for what I need.

u/Legorobotdude · 2 pointsr/EDC

Leatherman Squirt: $32.95

Sleekish wallet: $17.99

Thats all I really need, but I usually keep a larger knife or multitool on me as well

Edit: You could also grab a Skeletool or Wave off Ebay for ~$35 like I recently did

u/insurancefun · 2 pointsr/camping

Maybe a leatherman, a nice sleep system and a comfy folding chair. If you can be comfortable sitting, shitting and sleeping everything else will take care of itself.

Heck, screwdriver sets are cheap too. I'm not even sure why you would go directly to a Swiss Army Knife. Those things have scissors and wine bottle openers. Fine if you're having a picnic at the base of the alps with a big titty Swiss Miss. If you have money for a swiss army knife $50 Leatherman tool, then you had money for a massive list of tools including:

u/throwawayloginname · 2 pointsr/backpacking

a knife is "cool" and all but for actual indispensable usage... a good LEATHERMAN (or Gerber if youre so inclined.).

I'm a huge fan of the "wingman" model. Its my most used work tool and I'd never leave home camping/backpacking without it.

u/PuppiesGoMeow · 2 pointsr/EDC

Leatherman Wingman - $39

Total is $60 and is all you really need other than a handkerchief which you can get free some places.

u/colonelpan1c · 1 pointr/mazda3

No car should be without a tire rope plug kit and a half decent multi-tool. The rope plug kit is far better to use than the spare if you just pick up a nail/screw in the treads, and you'll want the multi tool to extract the nail and cut the end of the plug.

A small inflator, jumper cables (or jump pack), and first aid kit are also good to have.

And for the multi tool, skip the wally world off brand ones. An entry level Leatherman or Gerber tool will last much longer, and would be less frustrating to use.

I'd consider getting a new multitool as well. I had that exact same multitool and all the tools just became wobbly and unusable. I'd recommend getting this Leatherman Wingman. I got it to replace the Stanley a few weeks ago, and it's holding up really well so far. It's only about 10 bucks more, too.

I've been in for a little over 5 years now, and trust me you're not saying anything I don't already know. Doesn't mean I have to like it or accept it though. There's a lot of frustration underneath this whole debate for me that's a result of 4 years of not being able to get the things we actually need from our RA (climbing boots, cold weather gear, wet weather gear, basic tools, shit they're required by AFI to give us). So seeing one tell people to fuck off probably got to me. Problem was, until the year I left, we only had staffs to fight for us. Everyone above them wasn't my career field and couldn't understand why we needed the shit we needed (for the record, I'm comm, but my career field fits in better with CE). Then we got a senior superintendent who was from my career field who could start throwing some serious elbows in people's faces.

Anyway, now I'm going off on a tangent and should call it quits.

Multitool! - $28 - always good for when you're away from home

Filter pouch - $14 - if you're into (circular) filters

Remote flash triggers - various price points - for off camera flash fun

I think a multi-tool is probably the most practical thing anyone can have on them at any given time. Small, very portable. sturdy and more diverse than a swiss army knife. I like 'em a lot.

Everyone should own a multitool, though not necessarily that particular one. Just a multitool in general is pretty great to have handy. One of those things that you'll likely never really need, but then when you do need it, it's for something kind of major, like, you know, needing to shut off a leaking hot water heater, or quickly fix a child's toy. Yeah.

The Leatherman Wingman does have a locking blade. Can be read in the description of the Amazon page.

Leatherman Wingman

It's fulfilled by Amazon if you buy it from here. It might save you some money on shipping.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I'd like a rice cooker, trying to eat healthier and this would speed up cook times.

Also interested in owning a Multitool, seems like it would be very helpful when camping or doing anything.

Something about me? Hmm, I love camping, kayaking and watching movies.

Welcome to the Sub by the way! Always glad to see someone new!

Does he like zombie things? Amazon has plenty of zombie knives for cheap. If you want to go for a more usable knife/tool, Leatherman makes a cheap multitool.

Leatherman recently came out with the sidekick and wingman multitools which are much more reasonably priced.

u/GiggsJ10 · 1 pointr/EDC

Wingman is currently $23.95 on Amazon, $10 cheaper than what I paid for it :(

i would probably get a leatherman wingman and just remove the knife. you can find them for $20 on sale esp around chrismas time (i know a long way away) it really is a question of how big and what tools you want on it. i like the bigger pliers and flat and Philips heads personally. plus it has a package opener that is not technically a blade so probably tsa really depends on how pissy the person is being at security.

In one of your comments you said you were going to remove the blade on the multitool.

If so Leatherman does a bladeless version of the Rebar that has scissors instead. The Rebar is robust and relatively compact with a good compliment of tools and awesome pliers. I wouldn't bother with something like the Skeletool if you're going to remove the blade.
(70 bucks on Amazon but I'm sure you could find it cheaper elsewhere)

If that doesn't fit in your budget then I suggest getting the Wingman and removing the blade, it uses torx bits so it'll be easy to mod and it still leaves you with spring assisted pliers, scissors, a couple of drivers, a file and a package opener. (50 bucks on Amazon but I've seen them on sale for 30 at places like home depot so look around, it'll save you some cash.)
